I want to delete previously synced photos from my iPhone 4s. I followed the directions stated in this article but my pictures are still there. What can I do?

    Since photos aren't synced from an iPhone, is this for photos that were transferred to your iPhone from your computer via the iTunes sync/transfer process, or for photos imported from your iPhone's Camera Roll with your computer?

    All photos that were transferred from your computer are not removed from your iPhone after deselecting Sync Photos  under the Photos tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes followed by a sync? Was or is a warning message provided indicating this will occur after deselecting Sync Photos before syncing?

    After deselecting all the photos and syncing my phone, ALL my photos are still there

    If Sync Photos is no longer selected under the Photos tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes, then you'll need to restore your iPhone with iTunes.

    Is there another option? I don't want to lose all the other data on my phone.

    If there were another option, it would have been provided.

     

    There is some corruption on your iPhone or these photos would be removed from your iPhone after deselecting Sync Photos followed by a sync.

     

    You shouldn't lose anything.

     

    Photos/videos in your iPhone's Camera Roll are included with your iPhone's backup and should be imported by your computer as with any other digital camera as well.

     

    All iTunes content on your iPhone - music, movies, tv shows, audio and print books, and 3rd party apps should be in your iTunes library and can be re-transferred.

     

    Contacts, calendar events, notes, and reminders are designed to be synced with a supported application on your computer and are also included with your iPhone's backup, and there are a number of free email accounts that provide for syncing most or all of this data over the air.
